Q. Is there a way to subscribe to your full-length (members only) podcasts via iTunes?
A. Due to legal restrictions imposed by Apple, Radio RMN listeners are limited to subscribing to our free samples via the iTunes Music Store. As stated on an Apple FAQ page, podcast makers such as ourselves are prohibited from selling podcasts via the iTunes Music Store (see below).
If Apple ever decides to rescind this restriction and if such transactions are not subjected to onerous rules from the taxing authorities (such as sales taxes or value-added taxes), then it may become possible in the future for Radio RMN subscribers such as yourself to receive your subscription podcasts via the iTunes Music Store.

FAQs: For Podcast Makers
Can I sell my podcast in the iTunes Store?
No. Podcasts can not be sold via the iTunes Store. Podcasts requiring an external user name or password are prohibited.
Q. I am a dial-up Internet user. Is there another way to listen to the radio archives where I don’t have to wait for the downloads to finish, which takes forever on a dial-up connection?
A. Our web team acknowledges that an important segment of our podcast audience relies on dial-up services to connect to the Internet and transmit email. We are keenly aware that large file sizes make for lengthy downloads, so we’re using customized compression settings that allow us to deliver an hour segment of each radio show in the smallest possible file that doesn’t sacrifice sound quality.
That being said, we are actively researching what options are available to allow us to deliver our Members Only podcasts as streamed audio files to accommodate listeners such as yourself who are using dial-up Internet connections. Some software solutions that are available would require us to create two different versions of each show: one designed for broadcast subscribers and another for dial-up. Doing so would require purchase of special software, a revision to the existing web site, and a significant amount of testing.
We apologize that the Radio RMN website is not yet “dial-up friendly” and regret that we cannot provide a time estimate when such support will be added. We invite listeners to check back with us in a month or two for a status update.
Q. I received notification from PayPal of a new payment to Macsolvers that I don’t recognize. Please remove the charge and refund my payment immediately!
A. You received notification from PayPal of a charge to your account by Macsolvers because your Radio RMN podcast subscription expired and was auto-renewed under the same terms that you selected when you originally signed up for membership.
As stated previously, Macsolvers is the webmaster for the Radio RMN site and is listed in the heading when you purchase a podcast subscription on PayPal. If you would like to cancel your Radio RMN subscription at expiration, you can inform us of this fact and Macsolvers will remove your name off our membership list and refund the amount of the last payment that you were charged by PayPal.
Q. How do I cancel a recurring payment, subscription, or automatic billing agreement I have with PayPal?
A. From PayPal: Log in to your PayPal account. Click Profile at the top of the page. Click My Preapproved Payments in the Financial Information column. Click View the Agreement next to the merchant agreement you want to cancel. Click Cancel or Cancel automatic billing and follow the instructions.
If you don’t have a PayPal account, please send an email request to the address that will appear on your screen when you click this link.
Q. What are the song titles of the entrance and exit music used during each broadcast and who are the recording artists ?
A. ‘One Step Into The Light’ is a track from a rarely heard album recorded by The Moody Blues called “Octave” that’s available on Amazon.com.
‘Danger Zone’ and ‘Heaven In Your Eyes’ (aka Living On The Edge) are selections from the Top Gun movie soundtrack, also available online from Amazon. Kenny Loggins performs “Danger Zone” and Loverboy is the artist for “Heaven In Your Eyes”
